Webcams in central NI and Napier showed it pretty wet this morning, not sure about thunderstorms. (but a little snow or hail visible on ground at Desert Road summit early this morning, melted later)

Huge clap of thunder in Takapuna. Don't normally hear it in our big building, but the whole place shook.
